Astronomers say the best time for viewing our southern skies is during Winter.
Experience our amazing night sky through our wide range of telescopes at our sky viewing nights. Our Volunteers will take you on a grand tour of the Southern Hemisphere’s sky with a wide range of targets including Nebulas, planets, dying stars, and enormous star clusters.
Winter Night Tours run from June through to August. If there are clouds or even rain on the night you'll enjoy an amazing guided tour of the Observatory. Either way we give out hot chocolate at the end of the night so why not put on your warmest coat, beanie and boots on and join us on the hilltop for a very different experience.
